As an avid reader I can honestly say by far Caught Between a Dream and a Job by Delatorro McNeal has been the most life challenging and changing. If we will really allow ourselves to be truthful about where we currently are in our careers whether employed or unemployed inside there is a gnawing to be something more. That constant tugging is a primary indication that you are born for greatness.
This book is a very timely tool for individuals who are in transition seeking to attain new heights of achievement that will leave a lasting impact on generations to come. Delatorro, hands us a mirror and provokes us to look boldly at our deepest desires and dissatisfaction. He notes quite frankly that we spend too much of our life doing that which we inwardly despise. If we choose to settle for less than the best for ourselves in the end we are the ones who end up being shortchanged.
One of the primary points the author emphasizes is that when we search for true meaning for our existence and focus on opportunities that allow us to shine within our unique purpose money will follow. Oftentimes we are so bent on obtaining wealth and fame that we forget what really gives us true fulfillment. He challenges us to be committed to making a difference in the lives of others. I can attest that when I concentrate on assisting others in finding solutions to their problems usually the answer to my own complex situation is wrapped up in the advice that flows freely from my mouth.
Now is the time to ascertain what your dream job really is. The only thing that is holding you back from achieving notable goals is the limitation you place upon yourself. The risk of you losing it all is worth more than staying in a place of comfort.
This is the hour for you to search into the caverns of your soul and embrace the necessary strength to rise above every obstacle set before you. This is not the time to wallow in worry and confusion. I challenge you to act as if it is impossible to fail and move like you want to be successful in everything you do.
With every step you take, be confident in knowing that the dreams of your heart will outlive every job position you choose to work in. Remember, success looks good on you, refuse to clothe yourself in the garments of failure! Dream big and dream bright!
